This coming weekend we will be visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico with a few presentations and workshops. These are in conjunction with the “Counting Coup” exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Native Art. The poster above was designed for the workshops in Santa Fe at the MOCNA and SFAI this weekend. I wanted to design something about local issues and was told about the campaign to shut down PNM’s coal powered plant.

Just a couple facts:
PNM’s San Juan coal plant uses 9.3 billion gallons of clean fresh water every year and produces that much toxic water which then contaminates our air, soil and streams.
PNM fights all progressive legislation and regulation (carbon pollution reduction rule, renewable portfolio standard – they wanted to cut it in half during the last legislature, while many other states are moving in the opposite direction – to increase the renewable requirements.)
